Want to give you kid a new perspective? Help her turn her world – and her body – upside down.
 
Mastering a handstand does more than just instill pride and elicit giggles – it also has big physical benefits. “Being upside down is huge for coordination and body control, and it’s also great for developing upper body strength, which is the weakest area in kids” says Randy McCoy, Director of Curriculum for The Little Gym International, Inc. Have your kids follow Randy’s incremental plan, and they’ll be topsy-turvy in no time!
 
3 Steps to a Handstand
 
• Start by building arm strength. In a clear space with a rug or mat, have your child stand with her back to a wall, bend down, reach out, and plant her hands on the ground two to three feet in front. Have her keep her arms straight and carefully walk her feet up the wall.
 
1. Donkey Kicks: Next, have her squat away from the wall with her feet slightly apart and hands on the floor. Keeping her gaze on her hands, she should kick up both feet at the same time.
 
2. Long Leg Kicks: With hands on the floor and one foot 12 inches in front of the other, have her kick up with her back leg, then quickly follow with the other into a mini handstand.
 
3. Do a Handstand! Have her stand with her feet as shown and reach her hands to the ground. When they touch, have her push off her front leg and kick up her back into a handstand. Spot her as she goes up to prevent her from toppling over. Support her legs and/or hips so that she’s stable once she’s up.

Technology, video games, computers, social media... As the growth of these all point to a generation of less active learners, children at The Little Gym are continually encouraged to be involved. We understand that physical activity helps promote healthy lifestyles, so, why gymnastics? First, it's FUN! Second, physical activity develops a child's strength, flexibility, coordination and balance. Third, interactions with children their age in a positive environment help develop appropriate social skills. Fourth, athletic abilities are enhanced in a non-competitive environment. And, did I mention, GYMNASTICS IS SERIOUS FUN!
Summer is coming, and we can't WAIT!
 
Splash Into Summer enrollment time begins at midnight Monday, February 10th. 
 
Hold your child's spot in your preferred Summer class and Camps by enrolling online, or calling the gym. Before February 10th, you can pre-enroll by calling the gym. Don't miss out on all the fun of the Summer at The Little Gym of Fenton!
This year, Summer Camps are divided into 2 awesome tracks:
Super Kids Quest Camps, &
Grade School Thrill Camps!
Learn more here, and call or visit the gym to sign up your kids today!
 
SUPER KIDS QUEST CAMPS
These adventure-filled, 3 hour long camps are designed and created for children ages 3-8. Each camp theme is based on a fun, exciting mission or "Quest" that the kids are challenged to complete each day! Each day of camp involves a fun, creative storyline and music that will incorporate opportunities for the kids to exercise their muscles, imaginations and their cooperation skills - working together to complete each Quest! If your kids have been to The Little Gym Camps before, they're in for a totally new and exciting experience!!
 
GRADE SCHOOL SKILL THRILL CAMPS
Is your The Little Gym grade school child excited and eager to finally learn - or perfect - a Cartwheel? Handstand? Back Handspring? Vaulting? The Little Gym's new Skill Thrill Camps for children ages 6-12 will focus on a specific skill to offer the perfect combination of skill-building, fun and success! By the end of each camp, your child will have made significant strides towards learning the specific skill of focus. They just may even learn to do the skill by themselves - in just one camp!
Due to the extreme temperatures, and for the safety of our customers and our team, we are CLOSED for all classes on Monday, January 6th. We will regain classes on Tuesday, January 7th, weather permitting. **For the most current information, please check our voicemail or Facebook page. If you aren't on our email list yet, subscribe today to receive timely emails about closures as well! 636-343-5169 https://www.facebook.com/TheLittleGymOfFenton

Go, Diego, Go! Birthday Adventures at The Little Gym

Throw a special birthday adventure with Diego and his friends!

 

For several months, Dora the Explorer has been helping children celebrate special birthdays at The Little Gym. It’s been such a great adventure that Diego has decided to join in, too! “Go, Diego, Go!” Birthday Adventures are now available at The Little Gym of Fenton!

 

During a “Go, Diego, Go!” Birthday Adventure, the birthday child and guests will travel through the rainforest and mountains of Latin America, working together to become official “Animal Rescuers” just like Diego! Along the way, the kids will encounter Baby Jaguar, the Bobo Brothers, and other friends from Diego’s world.

 

In addition to leading the fun, The Little Gym team will handle everything from invitations to clean-up so you can rest easy and enjoy the day! Many dates and times book up weeks in advance, so call today to reserve your celebration. Let us help make this the most memorable milestone yet!

Meaningful learning is about the journey, not the destination. This year, that journey will be even clearer with The Little Gym’s new Victory Skill Growth Tracker!

 

The Victory Skill Growth Tracker allows instructors to document your child’s progress throughout the Season. As your child conquers new challenges and gains new levels of confidence, we’ll keep you informed so we can celebrate all of their victories together! At the end of each Learning Unit, you will receive an email detailing what your child has learned. We’re excited to share:

  • The areas of focus for the most recent Learning Unit
  • The skills your child worked on and their personal victories

From “Continental Cartwheels” to “Cooperation Station,” each themed, multi-week Learning Unit will lead to a natural progression of skills, helping your child grow into a well-rounded, well-adjusted super kid! Whether it’s your preschooler’s first unassisted forward roll or the first time your grade-schooler demonstrates teamwork, each one is a victory worth celebrating. And we can’t wait to celebrate with you every step of the way!

 

The new Season starts August 19th! Call today to enroll, or enroll online today!!

 

Come celebrate heading back to school with a fun party at The Little Gym of Fenton, in our BRAND NEW FACILITY!!

Children 4 months - 12 years are welcome to bring their parents to play, run, tumble, snack and have fun anytime between 2:00 - 4:00pm on Sunday, August 25th!

"Praise the action, not the child." Easier said than done. We are all proud parents, and can't wait to praise those first steps, first words, or first set of grades. We all think we're doing right by our children by offering kind praises, but a word of caution...Praise the action, not the child. As parents, we need to be careful of attaching praise to our children. Certainly, I'm not suggesting we don't encourage and cherish accomplishment, but we do need to focus on our methods. If we're not mindful, we could actually hurt our children's development, by conditionally training them to rely on praise to perform. What happens when the child "fails" ? The fear is that emotionally, because he/she has failed, they will internalize too much to the point of losing confidence in themselves. The child will doubt his/her abilities because performance is tied to them individually, and consequently self-esteem issues arise. To truly raise a child that will "never give up", focus your feedback on the action! An example of such dialogue would be... Instead of saying, " Brett, you're such a great artist! I love your painting!" An alternative would be, "Brett, you worked so hard on that painting, you must have really taken your time and thought about all the colors you used." It's a subtle difference, but what an important impact your words can have in influencing future behavior. Teaching a child to put forth the effort and never give up on his/her dreams enables consistent performance through focus on the journey, not the outcome. How many of us ourselves are willing to give up just because we did not receive the desired outcome? "Praise the act, not the child!" Thanks for reading!

 

Are you looking for a unique birthday adventure for your child? Well, load up your backpack and head on over to The Little Gym! Nickelodeon and The Little Gym have partnered to create "Dora the Explorer" themed birthday parties with a special storyline and music from the Emmy award-winning animated preschool series.
 
A Dora the Explorer Birthday Adventure at The Little Gym is the perfect way to make the big day extra special. Your birthday child and their friends will have the entire facility to themselves to take part in a fun imaginative adventure with Dora and the whole explorer gang. The birthday guests will help Dora overcome obstacles to find the Birthday Wands which they will use to fly to the top of Birthday Mountain! During the adventure, they'll cross Crocodile Lake, jump and bounce through Isa's Flowery Garden, and more. Along the way, the kids will encounter Tico the Squirrel, Swiper the Fox, and other friends from Dora's world.
 
In addition to leading the fun, The Little Gym team will handle everything from invitations to clean-up so you can rest easy and enjoy the fiesta! Many dates and times book up weeks in advance, so call today to reserve your celebration. Let us help make this the most memorable milestone yet!

Cold & Flu Season is no fun. Here's some reminders about our Cold & Flu Guidelines at The Little Gym of Fenton to help keep your child and others safe and healthy this season. According to the Center for Disease Control... "Flu-like symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue. Some people also many have vomiting or diarrhea. People may be infected with the flue, and have respiratory symptoms without a fever. A Cold usually includes a runny nose, sore throat, sneezing and coughing. These symptoms can last for up to two weeks." If your child has ANY of these symptoms, please KEEP THEM HOME until all symptoms are gone. Remember, our Makeups are flexible for a reason, so you never feel you HAVE to come when you're feeling ill. As a reminder, we're sanitizing the gym multiple times a day, including all big equipment, small equipment, door handles, drinking fountains, toys and shakers. Please help us keep sickness out of The Little Gym by sanitizing your child's (and your) hands before & after every class. Thanks for the help! We'll see you (and your healthy child) soon for class!

The best way to encourage kids to try their best is with a smile! But don’t take out word for it. Research studies confirm that positive feedback triggers a natural drive for kids to discover their own potential. Intrinsically motivated children are more involved in their own learning and development and tend to be more enthusiastic learners. So how can you help your child become intrinsically motivated? Praise your child’s efforts as well as their actual accomplishments. Offer suggestions in a supportive way and never criticize or compare their efforts to another child’s. Here at The Little Gym, we celebrate gold medal moments every day by challenging children to strive for their own personal best in a positive, non-competitive environment. Each new accomplishment builds confidence and each successful experience motivates kids to try for the next. Whether they’re learning to land the perfect cartwheel or are learning to listen and follow directions, the confidence gained will inspire them to strive for new challenges with proud Olympic-sized smiles on their faces.
